Storytime at Canalside - The Virtual Chapter

EPIC’s family Storytime Literacy program is for families focused on developing literacy skills, incorporating lessons based on universally accepted teaching methods into a number of themed interactive experiences. Storytime at Canalside is an offshoot of that program, where EPIC selects themes so the children are learning and experiencing special life lessons during the Storytime events. This summer's themes are: 


This year, Storytime at Canalside will be a virtual model. We will be livestreaming from the Great Lawn every Wednesday at 11am, and the video will be available on our Facebook and YouTube pages permanantly for families to enjoy at their leisure.

A little incentive to join us live: every week, we'll be picking one of our viewers to win a Literacy Prize Pack, full of goodies for the whole family!
